There is a wealth of knowledge on here. Beware of blanket statements like " run 40:1 Motul". We do need to know much more background on the bike. Sounds like a great bike. Hope you enjoyed Connondale!

If the workshop manual, showd the front sprocket being held on by a nut (most adult sized bikes use a nut and lock tab), you should definately use the nut. A motorcycle dealer shouks stock a nut. Allowing the sprocket to move or come loose can lead to catastrophic faikure if - engine cases and or sprocket shaft. I would strongly recommend following the factory fastening system.

So the message for all us is not to retire, we need to promote and pass on our skills to the next generations.

As a relative newcomer to the forum, it is great to knpw some of the forum history. I joined to gain proper information which is difficult to find. Social media sites are full of incorrect information and advice from "Knuckle heads". I believe well administeted forums are the modern day encyclopaedias with the correct information.

I see no value in expousing rubbish information and theories.

There is a Hodaka 125 which turns up to VERI Vinduro and sometimes the 250 Road Toad. Great compact bikes.

Interesting observation re scrutineering and sound levels. Some of us may remember times when there were no sound limits and no mufflers on 2 strokes.
We often did our own scrutineering in Victoria for "Chairs" as the solo guys weren't interested in us. Even now scrutineering needs some thought prior to entry.

Suzuki / Re: RL250 forks - are they 35mm or 1.3/8inch ?
« on: January 18, 2024, 04:19:18 PM »
Being Japanese and European the measurements should be true Metric. I wonder what tube size they started with, any machining and what thickness of hardchroming was used. Have you checked multiple tube location measurements?

Can you also measure the outside diameter of the shocks and the length of the spring required. I assume it is for a 4" travel bike?

To qualify as an Old boy, does one have to be old or an old membet of the Forum or both?
